Meat or Insects

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 19, 2017 by andelino

Eric Worrall at Watts Up With That? highlighted in a recent post a study “suggesting” people consume more “insects” as a way to cut “greenhouse gas emissions,” which some scientists believe are “responsible” for causing higher temperatures and all the alleged “harms” resulting from warmer climates.

The study, titled “Could Consumption of Insects, Cultured Meat or Imitation Meat Reduce Global Agricultural Land Use?,” was published on April 22 in the journal “Global Food Security.”

The researchers, all of whom come from Europe or Australia, wrote in their abstract, “Animal products, i.e. meat, milk and eggs, provide an important component in global diets, but livestock dominate agricultural land use by area and are a major source of greenhouse gases. Cultural and personal associations with animal product consumption create barriers to moderating consumption, and hence reduced environmental impacts.”

The researchers wrote one of their “goals” was to determine a way to “reduce” animals’ land use and “greenhouse gas emissions” by examining nutritious alternatives to “eating” animals, such as cows.

“The results suggest that imitation meat and insects have the highest land use efficiency, but the land use requirements are only slightly greater for eggs and poultry meat,” the researchers wrote.

“The efficiency of insects and their ability to convert agricultural by-products and food waste into food, suggests further research into insect production is warranted.”

“We conclude that although a diet with lower rates of animal product consumption is likely to create the greatest reduction in agricultural land, a mix of smaller changes in consumer behavior , such as replacing beef with chicken, reducing food waste and potentially introducing insects more commonly into diets, would also achieve land savings and a more sustainable food system.”

In its report of the researchers’ findings, an “unnamed” writer at Phys.org wrote, “Replacing half of the meat eaten worldwide with crickets and meal worms would cut farmland use by a third, substantially reducing emissions of greenhouse gases.”

Cows have long been a target of “global warming alarmists,” who say they are one of the greatest “contributors” to climate change.

According to a United Nations 2011 report, livestock “methane” emissions, a scientific way of saying “animal farts”, accounted for 39 percent of all “greenhouse gas emissions” from agriculture, which itself made up a large “chunk” of the total emissions.

Even Barack Obama “chimed” in during the “Global Food Innovation Summit” in Milan, Italy were he “warned” the world that more people on the planet were “eating” meat, causing a dramatic rise in “climate” emissions.

During his roughly 100-minute “remarks” for which he received a “reported” $3,000,000, he talked about “himself” 216 times.

Obama said “I” 168 times, “me” or “my” 40 times, and said “we,” “us” or “our” referring to his family “8” times. They definitely got their money’s worth.

Thankfully Barry’s brain didn’t “short circuit” into a stuttering rampage, which “drugs” do when used long term.

“As people want to increase meat consumption, that in turn is spiking the growth of greenhouse emissions coming out of the agricultural sector,” Obama said, pointing to countries that were “consuming” more meat.

The former president “shared” his views about the growing “threat” during a conversation about “food” with his former chef Sam Kass at the food “innovation” summit.

“People aren’t as familiar with the impact of cows and methane,” Obama said, adding that “as people want to increase more meat consumption, that in turn is spiking the growth of greenhouse emissions coming out of the agricultural sectors.”

The amount of “cows,” Obama explained, were contributing to “global pollution,” alluding to the amounts of “methane gas” emissions from cow herds.

“No matter what, we are going to see an increase in meat consumption,” Obama said, pointing to “developing” economies in China, India, Indonesia, and Vietnam.

More “advanced” countries, Obama said, would have to teach people to “have a smaller steak” and explore “reductions” to their meat consumption.

“What it does mean is that we’re also going to have to find ways to produce protein in a more efficient way,” he said.

During the conversation, Obama “argued” with Kass about how many “steaks” he had cooked him. Kass said he probably cooked “thousands of steaks” for the president, but Obama “interrupted.”

“I don’t think, thousands,” he protested. “Well hundreds maybe,” Kass backtracked. “I’ve been cooking for you for 10 years.”

“What is true is that I’m not a vegetarian,” Obama admitted, adding that he “respected vegetarians” but continued to eat meat.

How would you like some “meal-worms and crickets” instead of a “burger” at your Memorial Day barbecue?

Climate change “activists” say humans should start eating “insects” as a way to eventually cut the world’s “meat” consumption by 50 percent.

Doing that, activists “argue,” would greatly reduce “greenhouse gas emissions” by livestock.

The report on Phys.org stated: “Replacing half of the meat eaten worldwide with crickets and meal-worms would cut farmland use by a third, substantially reducing emissions of greenhouse gases, researchers say.”

While consumers’ “reluctance” to eat insects may limit their “consumption,” even a small increase would bring “benefits,” the team says. This could potentially be “achieved” by using insects as ingredients in some “pre-packaged” foods.

Tucker Carlson “weighed” in on his show, calling on “prominent” climate change activists “to go first.”

“If I’m gonna give up grilled meat for worms, I’ll need Leonardo DiCaprio to show the way. When Al Gore starts serving crickets for lunch on his private jet, I’m in,” he said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin gave a “press” conference where he “called out” Barack Obama and the American “mainstream” media in a “brilliant” and much “deserved” way.

From Russia With Love

During a press conference, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova dropped a “bombshell” that her country has “damaging” information the Obama administration “asked” them to “keep secret” but they just “might leak it.”

While answering a question about how she sees “the future of Russian-US diplomatic relations in the context of the current atmosphere in Washington,” Zakharova said they have “soured” over the last few years.

She used as her example, the announcement of “details for official visits,” according to an English transcript provided by the Kremlin.

“To tell the truth, over the past few years we’ve seen many strange things happen in Washington in connection with preparations for visits or talks by our foreign ministers. The US Department of State has more than once asked us not to announce planned visits until the last minute. This is not our tradition. We have been operating openly for years, but we have respected the requests we have received from our colleagues in Washington in the past few years.

But what happened after that? First, the US Department of State asked us to keep the planned visit quiet and not to announce it until the last possible minute, until we coordinated the date. We did as they asked. But a day or two later the information was leaked by the US State Department and sometimes by the US administration. Frankly, this put Russia and the media in a strange situation, because they didn’t know who to believe – the official agencies or the many leaks.”

She said the Russian government would be “transparent about such visits.”

“As I said, such cases in our relations with the US Department of State have become a bad tradition over the past few years. So, I can say in response to your question that we will make the date and format of contacts between the Russian and US foreign ministers public after we coordinate them. We won’t keep them quiet.

At this point, I don’t have any information I can share with you. I can say that this visit and such contacts are possible in principle, but it would be premature to talk about time frames.”

She then said if things “continue” on the present course, it may be “damaging” for former President Barack Obama.

“Also, I would like to say that if the practice of leaking information that concerns not just the United States but also Russia, which has become a tradition in Washington in the past few years, continues, there will come a day when the media will publish leaks about the things that Washington asked us to keep secret, for example, things that happened during President Obama’s terms in office. Believe me, this could be very interesting information.”

Our American colleagues must decide if they respect the diplomatic procedure, if they keep their word on the arrangements made between us, primarily arrangements made at their own request, or we create a few very nice surprises for each other.”

I wonder if that “includes” whatever President Obama was talking about with “outgoing” Russian President Dmitri Medvedev?

This alone should have “cost” Obama the election but he was given a “pass” by the lame stream media.

After Obama said he could be more “flexible” he promptly removed the “European Missile Shields” emboldening the Russians to “take” Crimea and “attack” the Ukraine!

Proof that Obama was “always” trying to do as much “damage” to the USA and the free World as possible!

Can you imagine the “headlines this would have made if this was “about” a Trump administration official.

But “because” it is about Barack Obama, the “worst presidents in US history,” the liberal mainstream media “ignores” this story completely.

“Caliph” Obama along with the “criminal” Clinton’s belong in “GITMO” for life!

As long as Obama “loyalists” still hiding in the White House and continue to “leak” Intel, it’s “inevitable” that Russia eventually will “drop a bombshell” about Obama.

Obama’s Lawlessness

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , on March 21, 2017 by andelino

Former President Barack Obama ran his campaign on “change” and said he would “fundamentally transform America.” For eight years he added “action” to his words, and America has “indeed” been transformed, “fundamentally.”

President Donald Trump’s campaign “inspired” support by “opposing” Obama’s transformations.

Candidate Trump said “undoing” what Obama had done would be easy: “He could nullify his executive actions by issuing executive actions of his own.”

When President Trump “got to work” in January, he began “signing” them right away.

But is “reversing” eight years of Obama as simple as signing “executive actions” with the signature “Donald J. Trump”?

Is it as “simple” as a Republican-controlled Congress “repealing laws” passed by the previous Democrat-controlled Congresses?

In reality, Obama made “eight” years of systemic changes: “not only legal and regulatory, but also cultural, moral and psychological.” Some of this “transformation” of America cannot be “reversed.”

Let’s start with “young” Americans. The Obama “Justice Department and Education Department” enforced “policies, regulations and laws” that prevent educators from “disciplining insubordinate” students.

They “argued” that since statistics show that “black” teenagers are disciplined at a “higher” rate than white students, thus American “teachers and administrators” are racist.

Obama’s bureaucracy “coerced” and even “prosecuted” schools into leaving two high school generations “unrestrained and unpunished.” The result is millions of young people have been “educated” to throw off “rules and laws.”

Obama also “attacked” America’s prison system, “accusing” it of systemic racism. He “blamed” the makeup of “jail populations” not on law “breaking,” but on the “law” itself, particularly the “judges and law enforcement officers.”

He “accused” police of “racism” so vile “claiming” that officers often murder a “man” simply because he “is” black.

By the end of Obama’s “second” term, it had become much more common to see people “marching in the streets, trashing public places, beating people on the sidewalks, and rioting in cities like Ferguson and Baltimore.”

Fringe “arguments” received the vocal support of the “highest” office in the country. Eight years on, many more Americans now “mistrust, disrespect and even attack law enforcement officers.”

Many hate the “law” more than they hate the “crime.”

Obama, occupying an office created to “enforce” the law, personally “undermined” the rule of law, in some cases openly “refusing” to enforce laws that his office is specifically “required” to enforce.

His “enforcement” of immigration was “lawless” at best, completely “anti-law” at worst.

Obama gave a presidential “endorsement” to many more issues that “fundamentally” weakened America’s “culture, economy and security.”

He “flung” the doors wide open on the “entitlement” culture and spent hundreds of billions giving away “phones, health care, money” and more. He “hooked” tens of millions more people on “welfare benefits.”

He passed a gargantuan “health-care” law, and the largest “tax” in history, which was a massive federal “overreach” into Americans’ personal lives.

He became the biggest “spender” in world history, “accumulating” twice as much “debt” as all his predecessor and nearly “doubling” the national debt to “almost” $20 trillion.

Can that be “paid” back with “interest” with a “few” signatures?

Obama also “invited” into the White House “Black Lives Matter,” an organization whose website “reveals” that it has as much or more to do with “anti-constitutional socialism and race-baiting.”

He “bathed” the outside of the White House in the colors of the “homosexual/bisexual/transsexual/queer/intersexual/etc.” flag, celebrating the newfound “right” of homosexuals to “marry.”

President Trump has said he is not “interested” in challenging this law, which by “itself” fundamentally “transforms” America.

Obama “successfully” used the Justice Department and the Internal Revenue Service as “political” weapons. He presided over the “surveillance” of journalists, the mass surveillance of “average” Americans, and the targeted “killing” of American citizens involved in “terrorism.”

His Justice Department “provided” a framework arguing that the “federal government” sometimes has the “legal right to kill Americans without trial,” overseas and at home.

The most fundamental “transformation” Obama accomplished can be summarized in one word: “lawlessness.” The most important American office for enforcing “laws” was occupied by a man who instead enforced his “personal will.

Unshackling the presidency from its “constitutional” limitations is one of the most “dangerous” transformations of all, no matter who “occupies” the Oval Office.

The worst “legacy” of the Obama administration was the “erosion of the rule of law.”

In 2017, America is a “different” nation from what it “was” on Jan. 20, 2009. To sign away some of Obama’s “destructive” policies and laws will be easy, but to “confront” America’s changed “mentality” will not.

To instead “leave it as it is” will be easy; to “transform” it back to the “way it was, much less to make it great,” will not. That’s because the Obama years appealed to an “ugly, destructive and powerful” element: “our lawless human nature.”

The only way to truly “roll back” the Obama years is to change our own “hearts and attitudes” toward law.

Many of you lead “busy” lives and may not have the “time, the ability, or perhaps even the stomach” to watch another “dreadful” speech from Comrade Obama.

As a public service, the speech has been “reduced” to its “bare” essentials to spare you the “pain” of watching his “Castro-like” address.

And who can “forget” Obama’s statements on “illegal” wiretapping’s…

Here is Obama’s “farewell” address:

One final “batch of lies” from our 44th President…

Immigrant Slaves

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 20, 2017 by andelino

Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson was roundly “criticized” by celebrities like Samuel Jackson, Leslie Jones and Whoopi Goldberg after he referred to the “slaves” from Africa as “immigrants” with dreams and hopes for their children’s futures.

President Barack Obama used “similar” language to include African-Americans “descended” from slaves among the immigrants who “helped” shape America.

Here is Obama in 2015:

“Certainly, it wasn’t easy for those of African heritage who had not come here voluntarily and yet in their own way were immigrants themselves. There was discrimination and hardship and poverty. But, like you, they no doubt found inspiration in all those who had come before them. And they were able to muster faith that, here in America, they might build a better life and give their children something more.”

Here is Carson in 2017:

“That’s what America is about, a land of dreams and opportunity. There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less. But they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters, might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land.”

Whoopi Goldberg promptly “blasted” Ben Carson after he compared “slaves to immigrants.”

During “The View” the host asked how it was that the HUD secretary “missed” that slaves did not come to America “voluntarily.”

“Maybe we need to get him a history book,” Goldberg insinuated. “I mean were the slaves really thinking about the American dream? No, because they were trying to understand, ‘what the hell just happened?’”

“When people immigrate they come with the idea that they’re going someplace for a better life. That’s why people immigrate to America every day. It’s voluntary, but the slaves…we were not voluntary. We looked up and one minute we thought ‘hey what an amazing land.’ And the next thing we knew we were like ‘uh-huh, what just happened?’”

“How does he miss what slavery is,” Goldberg exclaimed. “How does he miss that no slave came to this country willingly? I’m sorry, Ben, watch ‘Roots.’”

Carson has since “clarified” his remarks on Facebook and said that the “slave narrative and immigrant narrative” are different experiences.

“I’m proud of the courage and perseverance of Black Americans and their incomprehensible struggle from slavery to freedom,” Carson wrote.

“I’m proud that our ancestors overcame the evil and repression that we know as slavery. The slave narrative and immigrant narrative are two entirely different experiences. Slaves were ripped from their families and their homes and forced against their will after being sold into slavery by slave traders. The Immigrants made the choice to come to America. They saw this country as a land of opportunity. In contrast, slaves were forced here against their will and lost all their opportunities.”

It is “safe” to say that Carson, the “renowned” neurosurgeon, professor and director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins, and 4 time best-selling “author,” fully understands the “nature and history” of slavery in America, and used the word “Immigrants” by choice, to illuminate the fact, that “despite” slavery, African Americans are a part of this “Nation of Immigrants. “

He chose that word because it suggests “inclusion” not division, “self determination” and not victim hood. But If the Dems weren’t being arrogant, divisive, nitpicking “obstructionist” they’d have no purpose in life.

Boycott hateful, “racist” Samuel Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg and Leslie Jones who “built” their Tinseltown careers being the “go to” for angry “black man” with the “foulest” mouth on earth.

Carson is a “great” example of how a person, despite “obstacles,” with initiative, drive and focus, can become anything they “desire” in this great country.

The opportunities for “success” are there for anyone to take “advantage” of, even someone who grew up in “poverty” in Detroit. Since Carson does not see “himself” as a victim, and never plays the “victim” card, the Dems “reject” him.

They don’t like success “stories” from Black conservatives that “started” with nothing. I think his “compassion, intelligence and personal history” will lead him to great “success” in his new position.

Liberal “tolerance” stops at the “democratic” party door. If you are outside of their “orthodoxy” then liberals have “free” reign to show their “racist, sexist, anti-Semite, xenophobic” self. It is in their “nature.”

They are filled with “hatred” for those that do not “believe” as they do, kind of like “Muslims” thinking everyone else is an “infidel.” Democrats need suppressed “victims.”

The “Libtard” does nothing to help the“victim except show up every four years to “remind” them of their “victim hood” in an attempt to maintain their “votes.”

It is “joyful” to see some “blacks” like Carson, Thomas, Rice, etc., who have had the “courage, capacity and desire” to leave the democratic “plantation” of hatred.

In time their “examples” will hopefully make a “difference” throughout their community but perhaps not in my “lifetime,” sigh.

Just more hypocritical “garbage” from clueless celebrities and political organizations who are more interested in “partisan” jabs then working to “create” solutions.

Obama The Thief

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , on March 18, 2017 by andelino

As reported by Fox News, congressional investigators “claim” the Obama Administration “funneled” billions of dollars to “left-wing activist groups”—such as the National Council of La Raza, National Urban League and National Community Reinvestment Coalition—through a “slush fund” scheme of the Department of Justice.

“Findings spearheaded by the House Judiciary Committee point to a process shrouded in secrecy whereby monies were distributed to a labyrinth of nonprofit organizations involved with grass-roots activism,” reports Fox.

“Advocates for big government and progressive power are using the Justice Department to extort money from corporations,” Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch told Fox.

“It’s a shakedown. It’s corrupt, pure and simple.”

Fitton also suggested that these “spontaneous” protests sprouting up at town halls and elsewhere are connected to the left’s “massive infrastructure,” created in part by Obama’s “slush fund” at the DOJ.

“The protests are as organic as a plastic cup,” he said. “There is a massive left-wing infrastructure in place trying to protect the monstrous government created by the Obama administration.”

Mike Huckabee, the former Governor of Arkansas, said the “revelations” leave Obama in very “hot” water. If the House Judiciary Committee takes this “inquiry” all the way, “criminal” charges will be filed.

“Somebody ought to go to prison for this. This is worse than a mafia shakedown. At least if the mafia shakes you down for protection, your store doesn’t burn down. But this is a case where the liberals have played Robin Hood. They have stolen from the government, the tax payers, and they’ve given it to their pals.“

Obama almost “doubled” the national debt.

On January 20, 2009, when Obama was “sworn” in, the national debt was “$10.626 trillion.” On January 20, 2017, it was “$19.947 trillion.” Obama added “$9 trillion to the debt,” more than any other president.

Obama’s “apologists” claim the national debt is largely “out of a President’s hands.” They are currently having “trouble” explaining why the national debt “fell for the first time in decades” one month after he “left” office and President Trump took the “reins.”

Here’s essentially how the “shakedown” works, as outlined by Fox:

When big banks are “sued” by the government for “discrimination or mortgage abuse,” they can settle the cases by “donating” to third-party non-victims. The settlements “do not specify” how these third-party groups “could use the windfall.”

So far, investigators have “accounted” for $3 billion paid to “non-victim entities.”

Critics say banks are “incentivized” to donate the funds to “non-profits” rather than “giving it to consumers.”

As noted by the “Competitive Enterprise Institute Center for Class Action Fairness” Director Ted Frank, DOJ officials are essentially “going” after corporate defenders to “to fund their pet projects.”

“The underlying problem with the slush funds is we don’t know exactly where the money is going,” said Frank. “Using enforcement authority to go after corporate defendants, DOJ bureaucrats are taking billions away from taxpayers to fund their pet projects overriding congressional preferences.”

Although the DOJ claims it’s perfectly lawful to “bypass” the Treasury Department since the banks are “voluntarily” donating, Frank argues that bypass of the department “subverts the legislative branch’s essential spending power.” Not to mention, critics have suggested the “voluntary” donations come attached with “incentives and pressure.”

“This is real abuse of power,” insisted Frank.

“Congress allotted $47 million for the HUD Housing Counseling, but the Citi and Bank of America settlements shipped in an additional $30 million in funding,” in the FY16 Enacted Congressional Appropriation, outlines Fox as an example.

“The Legal Services Corporation was allocated $385 million from Congress but is getting an additional $412 million in taxpayer dollars from the third-party settlement practice.”

Moreover, in a recent Volkswagen “settlement,” a $1.2 billion investment into zero emission technology requirement “was not only twice denied by Congress but is now expected to receive four times the amount originally requested by the Obama administration.”

Republicans argue this alleged “abuse of power” should be a bipartisan issue.

“Democrats thought it was an attack on Obama,” said Republican Oklahoma Senator James Lankford. “This is not a Republican or Democrat issue, but one of good government. Actions settled by the federal government should go back to the federal government, back to the taxpayer.”

Legislation, called “Stop Settlement Slush Fund Act of 2017,” has been introduced by Lankford to address the scheme.

“Congress must permanently end the abuses Obama’s Justice Department exploited to use settlements to funnel money to their liberal friends,” said House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, a Republican representing Virginia.

China’s NK Dilemma

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , on March 16, 2017 by andelino

Lou  Dobbs has a few “thoughts” as tensions are “rising” in Asia to the “break point.”

“Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will this week attend meetings in Japan, South Korea and China. Tillerson’s meetings motivated by those rising tensions. North Korea is now preparing for a nuclear test, after firing four ballistic missiles over the past week.”

“And China,” Dobbs points out, “not restraining its client state but rather seemingly supporting Kim Jong-un’s irrational conduct and threats. China warning that the United States must pay the price for deployment of ground to air defenses in South Korea. The United States began the positioning of the THAAD missile defense system in South Korea last week, which has a 100% success rate, by the way, in the interception of and destruction of ballistic missiles.”

“The Trump administration also stepping up its response,” says Dobbs, “by supplying armed drones to South Korea, stationing Gray Eagle attack drones about fifty miles south of Seoul. And US Special Forces, including SEAL Team 6, reportedly participating in joint military drills with South Korea.”

Dobbs says, “Beijing is also nearing the completion of its militarization of the artificial islands it built in the disputed waters of the South China Sea. Japan, as a result, sending its largest warship, the Izumo Helicopter Carrier into the South China Sea, where the US Aircraft Carrier Carl Vinson strike force is already on station.”

“Beijing,” says Dobbs, “must wonder at the response of the Trump administration to these threats of its puppet ally, North Korea and its own, hardly concealed aggression. It was less than a year and a half ago that President Xi Jinping stood in the Rose Garden and figuratively patted then-‘president’ Obama on the head and declared China didn’t intend to pursue militarization.”

He adds, “Xi would make a terrible mistake to believe the Trump administration is even remotely as passive or as foolish as the previous administration; or reluctant in any way to meet any challenge.”
